HOUSTON — The Patriots arrived in Houston for SB LI on Monday afternoon, landing around 2:45 p.m. CT, about 45 minutes ahead of the original 3:30 p.m. itinerary. As soon as the Delta charter pulled up in front of the media section on the tarmac at George Bush International Airport, airport personnel rolled over a pair of stairs, one in the front and one in the rear of the aircraft.
As soon as the stairway in the front was in place, the plane’s flight crew flew a pair of Patriots’ flags, one out of the front of the plane and the other in the front doorway.
Owner Robert Kraft and son Jonathan were among the first to deplane, then head coach Bill Belichick. Tom Brady deplaned along with backup Jimmy Garoppolo, from the rear.
The highlight was defensive tackle Alan Branch motoring from the rear doorway to one of the six buses that lined up to take the Patriots on their way from the airport 18 miles south to downtown Houston.
The Patriots checked into their hotel, the J.W. Marriott and then will prepare for Monday night’s Super Bowl Opening Night, featuring the massive media availability at Minute Maid Park. The session was affectionally called “a circus” by Belichick on WEEI’s Dale and Holley program earlier in the afternoon.
The team will have its media session, then a light day resembling a regular off-day on Tuesday, before getting ready for Wednesday’s standard practice at the University of Houston. For the Patriots, Monday’s plane ride of just over three hours was a continuation of a busy day. They began the festivities with a 9 a.m. ET rally outside Gillette Stadium, where owner Robert Kraft, quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick spoke.
